360 Degree worked fine. However, tumulting the degrees without being able to implement feedbacks , wont create any impact , and will only prolong the process.
What do you find is best aligned with your firm ? Choose the process , where you can divide the weightage from the response.
Looking forward to hear from you

180 degree:

180 Degree is one of the method by which feedback of an employee can be judged and measured.

Here two people are involved in the feedback process; one is the employee himself and his immediate boss.

The employee share his work experiences including good and bad with the hr people, and the boss gives the feedback of the skills and attitude the employee carry. And then the data collected is matched with the competency norms of the organization and a feedback is prepared about that particular employee. And with this feedback the management takes s further actions for better performance of that employee.

This performance appraisal form is used in all big and small scale industries and organization.
